Dia de Muertos Photographic Exhibition

On an unusual day in Sydney where the weather was wild, Roberto Duran was holding his opening night of his photographic exhibition in the suburb of Paddington.

On arrival the drinks were flowing and a mass of people filled the tiny rooms of the Barry Stern Gallery straining their necks to watch a woman in red face painted like a skull, dancing to the music. Once the music stopped the crowds started moving again and i was able to make my way into the rooms where Roberto Duran’s photographs hung.

The wonderfully vivid images representing Dia de Muertos (the day of the dead) were beautifully executed and compliment the wonderful talent of body painter Julie Tattam. The exhibition runs until the 2nd November, opening hours are Wed – Sat 11am – 5.30pm and Sun 12pm – 5pm at the Barry Stern Galleries, 19 Glenmore Road, Paddington NSW. If you get a chance you should definitely go and see it.
